    I would like to guage the reliability of the new Ruger LCP 380 by feedback from owners on how many rounds total have you fired through your Ruger LCP with out any function problems (FTF, FTE, or no longer works)? I understand this is not an all comprehensive evaluation, but I believe it could give a rough estimate.

    If your 380 LCP is still running, only total round count is needed.
    If your 380 LCP stopped running, total round count and briefly the failure issue is needed.

    I will start with this format:

    101 rounds, "then" the trigger failed to reset, does not work and will be returned to factory.

    Just got mine last week. shot over 100 flawless rounds, including some 12 year old hollow point rounds I found in my closet. Worked very well and shot pretty accurate for a little guy.

    I have now seen several of these at the range{ I spend a LOT of time at the range} everyone that has them loves them and I spoke with one guy that had 500 through his without a hitch.

    A friend of mine just picked one up last week. Dry firing it like 3 times, the trigger stopped working. His sone took it home and started working on it, got it working and they put maybe a mag through it before it failed again. It is now back at Ruger.

    LCP Broke before and after +/- six rounds?

    I will be getting mine back in about a week and a half. I hope all is well when it gets home. I spoke with the factory today. I was told when asked the lady on the phone it was the trigger bar and trigger pivot pin that would be replaced. If it does'nt run okay like the rest I will be dissapointed.
